For example, I have many word and excel files to edit and update every day, it is very troublesome and inconvenient if I have to copy them to the backup location every time
after I have updated a file. How can I just work with the files freely and the backup will
be updated automatically
Well, this is a very old problem, with MANY solutions.
O365 subscription and OneDrive would be today's answer for simplicity. You can just have your My Documents or whatever folders you choose backed up to a cloud server.
Alternatives like Carbon Copy exist.
Robocopy is part of Windows, you can use that to back up to any number of locations, including ones on your local network. Router's with a built-in NAS (Network Attached Storage) are quite common, check yours. You might just be able to plug an external hard drive (or other USB drive) into it.
You can back up the whole computer over night to some destination, a process called cloning.
The list goes on, and there is tons of third party software and solutions out there.
Hi, sound like it is the best solution because no third-party software is needed, but I mean, will it update the backup copy as well? Or just create
a backup file but doesn't update? Because my word and excel file are updated every day and probably every hour, I cannot always remember
to update the backup if it has to be done manually, this is my problem now.
